Google Will Let You Have Chromebooks Running Windows 10

Chromebooks are one of the best budget-conscious laptops around but, if you want Windows 10, the only option is the Pixelbook, which does come at a higher cost. Fortunately, according to XDA-Developers, that soon will change.

After spotting the Campfire feature in the source code, XDA-Developers learned that Chrome OS will soon allow dual-boot Windows 10 on multiple Chromebooks offerings.

While this doesn’t exactly mean that you’ll be able to run Windows 10 on any Chromebook, hardware manufacturers whose offerings have more than 40-50GB of flash storage could in theory offer this option. This excludes lower-priced Chromebooks which usually offer up to 32 GB of storage but, overall, this is really great news. Through the same report, we know that Campfire will be much easier than previous ways of getting Windows 10 on Chromebooks (flashing firmware or using the Developer Mode).

Of course, Google has not yet confirmed this report nor provided a timeline for the Campfire feature, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens. Hopefully, it will be launched, since a lot of Chrome OS devices lose potential owners due to them needing to use Windows 10-only software.
